Dirty Valkyrie by R.M. Sotera

Dirty Valkyrie is the third installment in the Dirty Series by R.M. Sotera. I highly suggest that you read the first two entries as it is not a stand alone novella.

Dirty Valkyrie starts with the wedding of Jett, a demon-slaying estranged son of Thor to Sophia, a human. His sister, Brandi, a demi-goddess Valkyrie is the Maid of Honor and her date to the wedding is Laurent, a Master Vampire ally of the twins. Laurent thought he was in love with Sophia, but realizes that what he thought was love pales in comparison to how he feels for the Valkyrie, Brandi. He sets out to seduce her and after initially denying her feelings, Brandi dives head-first into a relationship with Laurent. Read More »

Out for Blood by Kristen Painter

There are several narrators in the House of Comarré series, so I’m going to structure this review a bit differently than normal.

Mal and Chrysabelle: A good chunk of their story revolves around their feelings for each other and what that means for the cursed vampire and former comarré, or blood servant. The main mysteries in their lives revolve around the possible identity of Chrysabelle’s brother, the effects of melting down the ring of sorrows and using it to replace Chrysabelle’s signum, and the attempted retrieval of the vampire baby.

Doc and Fi: Fi is, obviously, still not happy with the “benefits” Doc received when he became pride leader. She makes a pretty bold stance to get back what she lost, and I have the feeling the repercussions are going to be severe.

The Witching Hour by Ashley Christman

The ways of gods and goddesses are mysterious, and all too often humans become pawns in their plans. The modern world has little time for the gods/goddesses and great skepticism for the whole notion, and so the gods/goddesses of our forefathers fade away from memory and their powers fade with them. Not all, however, are resigned to such a fate, and one, Hecate (the triple goddess and considered mother of all witches), formulates a grab for power that will impact a family for generations (both living and dead).

Goddess of Legend by P. C. Cast

I feel a little sad writing this, but I did not enjoy P. C. Cast’s latest Goddess Summoning book. I was alright with the last few books, but the first by far were the best in the series. My favorites were Goddess of Spring, Warrior Rising and Goddess of the Sea. Lately, I feel as if Cast has been drawing away from the roots of her early writing and trying to get in to a new audience/target/genre? The same is happening with her Young Adult House of Night series as well. Read More »

Artemis the Brave by Joan Holub & Suzanne Williams

The Goddess Girls is an excellent children’s series. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially someone looking for a good chapter book series for girls ages 8-12. I enjoyed them as an adult, though more as a quick thirty-minute read. The authors do a fantastic job of mixing Greek myths with issues young girls face on a daily basis.

Artemis the Brave is the fourth book in the series. Artemis, one of my favorite Greek mythological figures, is portrayed as a tomboy, she is friends with a lot of people, and never ever has a crush on a boy. She also is very brave, though sometimes that is a front. Read More »
